We need a politics sub-forums. Politics shouldn't be all over the Off Topic forum draining out other discussions.

Politics sub-forum will never work without more stringent rules and active moderation. I doubt that RFD want to spend time/resources on that.

There would be so much chaos in the political sub-forum. It would be a breeding ground for trolls if there's little to no moderation.

I think he's trying to point out the fact that this is just blatant McCarthyism. The Russian ambassador to the US exists to talk to US politicians so it would make sense for people like Sessions to have contact with him just like it made sense for Schumer and Pelosi to have contact with Putin in the past.

The Trump campaign brought this on themselves though. They ran a campaign of misinformation and shady allegations of misdeeds so it's a little tough for them to complain about receiving a taste of their own medicine.

and almost any right wing media.
It's very strange that this huge scandal is nowhere to be found in any left media, not even to discredit it, nothing at all.


or any Canadian News Media for that matter

where is CBC, Radio-Canada, CTV, TVA etc ?
But any wiffs of Russia and its Frontpage with Peter Mansbridge .... LOL they really think we are that stupid.

The bias is baked in and they wonder out loud on CBC "why oh why??" alternative news and Wikileaks is gaining ground or outright replacing mainstream news.

That's some serious tinfoil stuff and blatant deflection on sessions Russian tied and lies
Its fake news.

Its crazy how everything is slowly unfolding. Trump being controlled by Bannon and Sessions. Russia is controlling Trump through them. GOP is stuck in the middle.

Sessions wouldnt recuse himself if the GOP was going protect him. This means the glass is cracking.

No wonder Mccain is still talking. He has the intelligence to back him up. This thing is real. Face With Tears Of JoyFace With Tears Of JoyFace With Tears Of Joy

Accusations against US attorney general a political ‘witch-hunt’, says Trump
The embattled US Attorney General Jeff Sessions says he won’t oversee any investigation into alleged ties between Donald Trump’s presidential campaign and the Russian government.
His announcement came after he was accused of lying at his confirmation hearing about meeting with Russia’s ambassador.
Al Jazeera’s Kimberly Halkett reports from Virginia.

Based on photo with Putin, Trump calls Schumer 'hypocrite'

NEW YORK — President Donald Trump, his administration under siege for contacts with Russian officials, is calling for "an immediate investigation" into Senate Minority Leader Chuck Schumer's own ties to Russian President Vladimir Putin.

Trump's evidence? A 14-year-old photo of Schumer and Putin holding coffee and doughnuts in a New York City gas station.

Yes because it's the same kind of evidence that they have about Sessions, a senator who happened to meet ambassadors as part of his job.

It's ok to meet with an ambassador. It's not ok to lie about it under oath.

Meeting with the Russian ambassador is not a crime, nor is having doughnuts with Putin, nor is having intimate relations with an intern. However, lying about any of those things under oath is a crime called "perjury."
